2. 2Bigger, bolder, betterThe Apple iPhone 6 marks Apples foray into large-screen smartphone territory.It is the thinnest iPhone yet, measuring just 6.9mm in girth.Replaces the blocky design of the iPhone 5/5s with rounded edges and curved corners.Display gently slopes towards the edges, feeling silky smooth to the touch.The ungainly plastic antenna lines at the back and protruding camera lens are our onlycomplaints about the otherwise gorgeous device.DESIGN 3. A visual treatThe Retina HD display measures 4.7-inches in size.1,334 x 750 pixels resolution results in a pixel density of 326ppi.Brightness levels are high, and the display is visible even in direct sunlight.Not overtly reflective, with stellar viewing angles.Colours are natural but not oversaturated.DESIGN 4. Tons of new camera featuresFeatures an 8MP iSight cameraand 1.2MP FaceTime shooter.The usual array of filters remain.Focus Pixels (phase detectionautofocus), makes focusingmuch faster.Camera offers improved facedetection, higher-resolutionpanoramas and exposurecontrol.New video features include1080p recording at 60fps, slo-moat 240fps and time-lapses.FaceTime camera captures morelight and offers a new burstshooting mode.CAMERA 5. Consistently good image qualityCamera continues to be one of thebest on smartphones.Very quick to focus, great formacro or action shots.Daylight images are detailed andsharp, while lowlight photos dontexhibit much grain.HDR mode is much quicker thanbefore, but not the most effective.The True Tone flash providesbalanced illumination in low light.Front camera can take share-worthyselfies.SunlightLow LightCAMERA 6. iOS 8 is the biggest release yetThe iPhone 6 runs iOS 8(upgradable to iOS 8.1)It brings several newfeatures like third-partykeyboards, actionablenotifications, support forwidgets in the Today viewand app extensions.Handoff lets you start atask on your iPhone andfinish it on your Mac.

Fast and furiousThe iPhone 6 is powered by Apples second gen 64-bit A8 chip.An M8 motion co-processor is also on board, gathering health data from varioussensors, including a new barometer, and relieving load on the main chipset.Multi-tasking and day to day performance is expectedly blazing fast.Gaming is a pleasure too, with intensive titles like Riptide GP2 playing without any lagsor freezes.PERFORMANCE 9. Disappointingly average battery lifeApple hasnt specified theiPhone 6s battery capacity,but teardowns reveal it is a1,810mAh unit.Battery life isnt improvedover the 5s, lasting for aday with moderate use andless than that with heavyuse.In settings, you can nowtrack battery usage per appto see whats draining yourjuice.PERFORMANCE 10. No middle ground in storage optionsApple has done away withthe 32GB version of theiPhone 6.Available options include16GB, 64GB and 128GBOn our 16GB unit, around11.4GB of storage isavailable to the user.Since the storage is fixed,its advisable to get a highercapacity variant if you savea lot of media and apps onyour iPhone.STORAGE 11.

Pricing & VerdictThe iPhone 6 is truly bigger and better than the 5s,and makes a worthy upgrade for those invested inMac, especially with iOS 8s new continuity features.But, it has some stiff competition from Androidheavyweights like the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One(M8) and Sony Xperia Z3, which despite being launchedfor around the same price, are now available for less. Ifyou have the moolah though, the iPhone 6 is still oneof the best smartphones for your money.Price:Rs 53,500onwards
